    Default Verizon Galaxy Note 2 Demo Units Appearing at Best Buy Stores!!! Is Launch Soon?

    According to this report by Adam Mills of GottaBeMobile.com the long awaited Verizon GN2 is now on display at some Best Buy stores.
    Verizon Galaxy Note 2 Release Date Nears as Demo Units Appear
    We know it's a Big Red version because of the controversial branded home button.
    The other good news is the depicted demo unit is displaying the split screen multi-tasking feature.
    This may be an indication that the VZW version will have this up and running out of the box instead of waiting for an OTA update.
    Maybe it was an advantage to launch last as Verizon is not very speedy in terms of getting out updates.

    While its encouraging, Its does nothing unless we can buy one, so why is BB even bothering to show it off. If a customer comes in and asks for it and they say no release date yet, they are going to get something else and return it within 30 days and cost BB a new phone that is now used. I can only hope for a Black Friday launch.

    I'm really surprised Verizon didn't get this out prior to Black Friday - at least it appears they won't make it. Some carriers are having some decent deals too but I guess Verizon will miss the bus on this launch.

    This. I have been saying this since I have heard the release date. It doesn't make sense that they will not have this phone out before Black Friday. I guess they are hoping people pay no attention to new phones and sell a tons of DNA's

    I just saw a tv commercial where T-Mobile has Samsung 4G devices free Friday and Saturday (Nov 16th and 17th). While the commercial didn't specifically call out the GN2, the device was pictured with the other Samsung devices.

    I went to a local Verizon corporate store yesterday. All the reps there told me they don't know when the Verizon Note 2 will be available. I replied back, "Are you serious?". They said they've received no official word yet. Whaaatever!

    Logic dictates that since bb has it on display and no dna's yet to date that it will debut before the 21st.........wait.......this is Verizon..........logic makes no sense here!

    This would make sense, but it sure didn't have a disclaimer and it was shown in the group of devices.

    It is not included, but depending on what plan you have (or start), it could be heavily discounted down to $99.00

    I just went to Best Buy and did a pre order on t he note 2. They only have it in white. The guy said the release date is the 29th of Nov., the way he said looked like he knew it would be coming out sooner. Any how Im excited that I was able to do so.

    I saw a full page ad in the paper. They had the SG3 listed twice.

    Ran by my corporate Verizon store just a little while ago and they have no clue when the note 2 will be out.

    Either Verizon and Samsung have supply issues or Verizon is just sticking it to us..........I hope it's the former and not the latter but I suspect the latter to be the case.

    It will be out the 29th, which has been the plan from the get-go. They're not putting up the "Shipping by 11/27" tags on the phone for nothing. They may have some communication issues from the top down to the individual stores and such, but it's pretty clear the 29th is the date.
